Unfortunately, my dear followers, it seems like I am not allowed to share photos from my current excavation in Copenhagen. I can tell you though that it is a big site with many and complicated archaeological layers. So far we have only dug down to the 18th century, but there are a lot of finds in the deposit layers. Mostly various pottery and glass pieces. The big deal about this site however is the well preserved wooden structures from a historical quay. Hopefully we will reach medieval layers before I leave in the end of May.
It is lovely to check the mailbox first thing after a workday! Here are some recent incomings:
An awesome and funny postcard from Allison in the US. She’s a fellow LEP-member :) Thank you!
Kara in the UK sent me this amazing envelope, full with stamps inside and out! And tea! And a letter! :D (And I love the Malkavian stationery!!) Check her blog out for lots of pretty snailmail! It got here so quickly :O Almost as if it was sent from Sweden. Big thank you Kara, I will try to write back this weekend :)
And then this. I know I am crazy, but I seem to have started a new collection: tintype portraits! You know that when you have three or more of something it is a collection, right? I found these pretties on etsy and couldn’t resist them. There are so many tintypes for sale online, and they can go for quite hefty sums. Since I am not very rich I have decided to collect the “boring” cheaper ones, but only buy those who speak to me in some way.
What I like about these ones, from left to right:
~ The sharp details of the lady’s dress. It looks amazing in the original photo.
~The many accessories this woman is wearing! Less is never more!
~The stern and kind of unamused expression on the woman’s face.
